Professional sand blasting media is ideal for a wide range of surfaces, from sand blasting for graffiti, paint and rust removal to sand blasting for car wheels; we offer a comprehensive solution for all your surface preparation needs.
Grit Blasting (Abrasive Grit Blasting)
Aggressive and thorough, grit blasting propels abrasive particles at high velocity to effectively clean and modify surfaces. Grit Blasting is perfect for cleaning mag wheels, marine vessels, heavy equipment, and metal trailers, providing optimal surface preparation for painting and enhancing coating adhesion.
Garnet is a natural mineral known for its hardness and durability, making it an excellent choice for heavy-duty cleaning applications. We utilise high-quality garnet blasting media to clean and prepare surfaces. Also known as garnet sand blasting, It offers exceptional results in removing rust, coatings, scale, and contaminants while safeguarding steel products.
Shot blasting utilises steel shot particles as the abrasive medium, providing effective surface cleaning, descaling, and preparation. This technique is commonly employed for metals and concrete surface cleaning and is used within the industrial or automotive industries.

Located in Panmure, Airoblast have a proven sand and grit blasting process for optimal results
Whether it's preparing structural steel or other surfaces for industrial coatings or intumescent coatings, our skilled contractors follow a step-by-step process to ensure a finished product that exceeds all expectations.
Our team thoroughly inspect the surface to be blasted, identifying any areas of concern and determining the most appropriate blasting technique and abrasive media.
Before blasting, we take necessary measures to protect surrounding areas and ensure a controlled blasting environment. This includes masking or covering parts that should not be exposed to the blasting process.
We carefully select the appropriate abrasive media, such as sand or grit or garnet, based on the surface material and desired outcome. Each abrasive has unique properties and characteristics that influence the blasting process and the final result.
Using specialised blasting equipment, we apply the selected media with precision and control - systematically moving the blasting nozzle across the surface, effectively removing old paint, coatings, rust, and other contaminants.
After the blasting process, we thoroughly clean and inspect the blasted surface to ensure all unwanted materials and residues have been removed. This prepares the surface for further treatments, such as industrial coating, fireproof painting or additional surface modifications.
